This is my comic entitled “Don’t Judge”, it’s pretty simple, but very true. Every day tasks are not as simple for a person with a mental illness, and yet more often than not we are regularly required to perform at the same level as those without a disability. I congratulate myself every time I get my dishes done, know that the task was as difficult for me, as a mountain hike would be for others.
